Four Stars for BEST WESTERN Connaught Hotel

The 55-room BEST WESTERN Connaught Hotel and the 26 – room Connaught Lodge in Bournemouth have been elevated from three to four star status by the AA.  The new grading follows a £1.5m refurbishment of the hotel over the last 4 years, together with an investment in new training programmes for staff.

"The plan to take the BEST WESTERN Connaught Hotel from three to four stars has required an investment in the hotel and our staff and the team has responded superbly. We now intend to build on this by further improving our standards of hospitality so that the BEST WESTERN Connaught Hotel becomes the first choice for people who live and work in Bournemouth as well as visitors to the area," said Managing Director, David Miller.

AA ratings are judged on food services, entertainment, view, room variations such as size and additional amenities, spas and fitness centres, ease of access and location may be considered in establishing a standard. Hotels are independently assessed in traditional systems and rest heavily on the facilities provided.

BEST WESTERN Connaught Hotel; which was originally built in 1850 as a gentleman's residence and has lost none of its 19th Century charm; has been recognised as one of the best hotels in Bournemouth, having been awarded one of the highest AA ratings, a Silver Shield by Green Tourism for Business and three major awards in 2009 by Bournemouth Tourism and The Certificate of Exellence 2013 from Trip Advisor for both the hotel and for Blakes.

The hotel has a delightful garden terrace, a double rosette restaurant plus excellent spa and leisure facilities. For businesses and conferences the BEST WESTERN Connaught Hotel has five meeting rooms with a maximum capacity of 200 delegates. There is free Wi-Fi internet access for guests using or visiting the hotel.
